London Olympics

National pride in winning individual medals in the Olympics is good. Thumping chests regarding total medals won is not. The rest of the world doesn’t want to see daily how China and the U.S. are winning more medals than anyone else. I can’t help but think that such news creates resentment instead of admiration. Why not lay off the national totals and concentrate on individual accomplishments instead. That’s what the games are all about.

Higher, faster, stronger . . . and taller. Have you noticed how tall so many of the Olympic participants are? With the possible exception of the gymnasts, everyone else seems to be gargantuan. How big will the contestants be in the 2052 Games? Or, in the 2100 Games? I can’t begin to imagine.
